My husband and I had a lovely meal here. It was pretty busy on the Friday night but service was friendly and efficient. Thai fishcakes were delicious. Would absolutely recommend.

Very friendly staff. Our stir fried chicken was a little chewy but other dishes were more successful (the Thai red curry for example).

We were staying just the night around the corner. Really wanted Thai and picked Old Siam because it was nearby. There were four of us: mom, two teen boys, and me. Service: 3/5. Good but not special. Decor: 4/5. Nice and very clean. Food: Satay starter: 5/5. Veg spring roll starter: 4.5/5. Pad Thai w/ chicken: 3.5/5. Good, not great.... More

The food and service at this restaurant were excellent, and I look forward to dining at The Old Siam again. I wanted a Laab salad, which was not on the menu, and it was added to our order without a single issue, and was very tasty indeed, and everyone at my table ate and enjoyed everything that we ordered. Aroi... More

The place itself is definitely not bad, a bit too smelly of fish when you enter but not a massive issue... The food itslef was nice but not a lot and not cheap... I would say worthy a try but do not expect too much...

Fancied some Thai food, passed this and went in. Not disappointed. Staff friendly, helpful and attentive. Calm, pleasant atmosphere. Recommended a wine to match our food, which arrived in good time. Everything well cooked and delicious. We all especially enjoyed the green curry. We had prawns with ours, but other choices available. Limited choice of desserts but the mango mousse... More

Nice food, cozy atmosphere and friendly staff. We ordered Tom Yum soup with prawn and it taste nice, and the restaurant adjusted it not to spicy, it is worth a try.

Really fancied Thai food and kind of stumbled upon this little gem of a restaurant. Lovely decor, very polite staff and most importantly delicious food. We were both extremely impressed with our choice for dinner and can't wait to return. I would definitely recommend this fantastic restaurant 100 percent...

I have visited this place for food on many occasions with friends and my partner and each time I enjoy the food that little bit more. The Old Siam provides a wide variety of Thai food including a recently added "chef special" menu. I tried food from this new addition and I have to say I was not disappointed. I... More
